Alexa, how will voice technology change health care?

VECTOR_OverlayTemplate-800x450-AlexaHackathonYou know Siri can tell you if it’s going to rain and the British man on your GPS will always lead you home, but what can voice technology software bring to health care?

This spring, Amazon’s Alexa partnered with Boston Children’s Hospital’s Innovation and Digital Health Accelerator (IDHA) to release its first health care “skill:” KidsMD. Users can ask the smart phone app for pediatric health advice the moment a concern arises.

Inspired by this new development, the Boston Children’s Simulator program held a “hackathon” to brainstorm other potential uses for voice technology in health care.

Read all about the ideas and insights that came out of the event on our sister blog, Vector.
